What about Recco or Camogli??

Hi, I would like to ask is a Recco good place to stay for a 2-3 days? I have never been in this part of Italy. What about beaches? Is a Recco rather "loud' or "silent" place? It means are there clubs?? disco etc??

And what about transport from Genova? I think that we take a train from Genova. IS there public transport (buses) to Portofino?

1. Re: What about Recco or Camogli??

No village in the area is particularly 'loud'. I would suggest Camogli rather than Recco, because Recco is the only town on the Riviera which was bombed flat during WW2, so it was rebuilt from scratch and consequently lacks character. In any event, there are both bus and train connections from Genoa to both R. and C., and from there to Portofino (via Santa Margherita Ligure). Local bus schedules are on www.tigulliotrasporti.it.

Also, checko out the Monte di Portofino regional park - www.parks.it/parco.portofino/Eindex.html

I completely agree with FF .. Camogli is the best option
